Michael Del Zotto ($1.087m) / * Ryan McDonagh ($0.850m)
Henrik Lundqvist ($6.875m) / * BACKUP GOALTENDER ($1.000m)
(these totals are compiled using the bonus cushion)
ROSTER: 22; PAYROLL: $58.572m; CAP ROOM: $0.441m BONUSES: $0.212m
Includes Brashear's cap hit, but I don't consider him to be on the roster. Brashear + Pick for lower Pick gives you an additional $1.4 million for a total of ~$1.8 million.
$1m allotted for a backup goalie.
Gave McDonagh a cap hit of $850k, he may also have bonuses.
Could save another ~$1m by switching Gilroy for Sanguinetti.
Very doable... could even give Kovalchuk another $500k without too much issue.
EDIT: 6 defensemen because I just think that's just the way Torts runs it. Additional d-man could be added by making one of the above moves.
he is an impossibility if you actually think the Rangers will field those defense pairings. There is no way that Sather can not sign at least one d-man, there are so many decent UFAs that it would be stupid not to.
